Classic Hits

What's your single worst fear?

I am absolutely petrified of fairground rides. Roller coasters, spinny things that throw you upside down.
Contraptions that spin you around at 100 miles an hour.

What's the best gig you've ever been to?

Probably the first one I ever went to which was U2 in Edinburgh in 1987 but I also remember seeing
Oasis live. I were doing some radio work backstage as Noel Gallagher came on to sound check ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’                                                                      
and I stood there in an almost empty Arena in a jaw dropping moment.

What's the worst thing about you?

I am not the world’s most patient guy. If I book a holiday for August in January then I have the
itinerary planned out within 24 hours. I am a bit OCD in doing things in advance. I like to think it is
because I am a born organiser but it’s more likely I am a fussy knickers.

What's your favourite movie?

12 Angry Men which is an old black and white classic but I also adore Pulp Fiction and the Naked Gun series.

Where is your favourite place in the world?

New York. I have been fortunate enough to go a few times and it is amazing. As for in the UK,

What are your must listen to artists?

I have always liked U2 ever since their early days and I do like a bit of REM too.
Beautiful South, Oasis, Kate Bush, Kasabian and The Beatles all feature on the Lethem iPod

What food would you eat for a last supper?

Has to be 3 courses ( obviously ). Baked camembert for starter, fish and chips for
main and apple strudel with ice cream for pudding. Washed down by a pint of Stella or 4!

What tv shows would you sit through the adverts to watch live?

Well I love classic comedy so although I have seen every Only Fools and Horses and Porridge
about 2000 times I still watch them intently. A few years ago I got into The Sopranos 
and that was utterly compelling. Plus anything with Michael Palin in. The man is my hero.
